Bacon Cheeseburger

Thats right, I said it, Bacon Cheeseburger.  This one pan dish is so good and easy to make.  It tastes just like a bacon cheeseburger but it is lightened up and healthy for you!

My husband and R. absolutely love it and I can eat it too since it is on my portion control menu. Definatly crisp the Turkey bacon before browning the meat so that you get the crispy bits in each bite.

Serve it in a whole wheat pita or on top of lettuce, either way its fantastic.
